I have a wonderful wife who is deserving of SO much. Much more than I can afford.
SO I thought that rather than spend money on a gift that is NOT going to last and wouldn't show my true affection for her, I thought that buying US a Harley to enjoy together would truly show her how I felt (even though she doesn't want us to have one).
We could take romantic rides together. Shop for leather duds together. Shine and clean on it obsessively together. Listen to "BORN TO BE WILD" together.
I value your opinion. What do you think?
Dear Love Struck?
Just who or WHAT do you really love here?
And I think you're right.
The gift of a Harley on Valentine's Day to a wife that doesn't want one would truly be showing her how you feel.
A few feelings/words that came to my mind were: Selfish. Ignorant. Out of touch.
I'd be careful here. She sounds like a fantastic woman and you wouldn't want to mess things up.
My gift ideas?
Chocolate. A gift certificate for a massage. A nice candlelit dinner. A weekend at a bed and breakfast. A new outfit and a large diamond. THEN ask if she wants a Harley.
